Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Scott Great product... but no charcoal filter included.
Although Home Depot and others have the same price on the same model, others have them in the store so you can take it home with you. Home Depot does offer free delivery from the GE warehouse and will take away your old one. Other store's version also has the charcoal filter (for indoor venting) included... the Home Depot one does not include this $35 part. I only bought this at Home Depot, because the other store was out.
This microwave is MUCH quieter than my last GE. I love the features. It is easy to use and medium difficulty to install, unless you are replacing another GE like I was (which makes it EASY) and you can just hang it where the old one was on the same bracket.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 1glc This lost cost microwave oven has every option that my family needs.
This easy to use GE microwave oven replaces an earlier model that my family used in our kitchen for many years. This new microwave oven fits the space and installment parameters already in place in my kitchen. Installment was easy. The oven works very well. You'll find the often used reheat, popcorn, and other shortcuts ready for your selection. The touch pad choices have been reorganized, so I am relearning that. Overall, this GE microwave oven is a excellent choice for consumers seeking several features for a reasonable cost.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DG Bad purchase
Bought this as a replacement for the one put in our home when it was built. It didn't even make it to 5 years. First the underneath light went out. Then the turntable stopped working, and it stopped heating. Still looks brand new, but its nonworking, and I'm shopping for a replacement.

We bought this microwave in August 2011. Purchased the extended warranty for 2 years. Microwave stopped heating in June 2014. Had microwave repaired on 8-8-14; on 10-7-14 microwave stopped heating again. Called GE but they would not cover repairs. Lemon product because this appliance has received minimal use; disappointed GE would not cover this product and repairs. Will be cheaper to purchase a new microwave than get this one fixed! Do not recommend this product! The microwave was not even used after the August repair until we returned home to use again in October! The part was apparently not good or the function of the oven is not working properly!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by planopurchaser Panel Plastic Peeling
I purchased this microwave on January 25, 2013. Before March 1, 2013 the touch control panel plastic cover was bubbling and peeling. I actually thought that I had forgotten to take the shipping plastic off this section but I soon realized it was not protective covering. The power of the microwave was great initially but now, 10 months into ownership, the power seems to be diminishing. I agree with the reviewer how made the comment about having to add 30 seconds of time when using the popcorn control.
I would not recommend purchasing this microwave. I hope it lasts through the holidays before I have to purchase another microwave.

Control board shot after just over two years of use. Looks like the part is easy to replace but retails for $125.00. After abuot a year of use the vent fan would kick on by itself once in awhile and also the fan that turns on when the microwave is in use (I don't know what it's called) would turn on by itself. The oven wouldn't heat up, but that fan would turn on. What an awful piece of garbage. GE really put out a lemon her. Wouldn't recommend it at all.

I wrote a good review 3 months into my purchase of this over-the-range microwave. Attractive, easily installed, simple to use.
15 months later - on a 95 degree day, the microwave panel shorted out and I find it needs a $200 repair! After a quick internet search, I found that this is a really common occurrence for this microwave. Works great for 6 to 18 months, then...replace or repair.
Good microwave for the 18 months that it worked - however, if you need to have a microwave that will last longer, purchase a better quality microwave.
Do an internet search of the brand name and serial number to find the complaints about each product. It's an easy way to be an informed consumer!
